Hospice is a local charity and every year we care for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers.
Youth Ambassadors, young people aged between 16 and 30, will strive to connect LOROS to their communities by supporting the community engagement team. With 6,301 young people engaged within the last 2 years via projects volunteering and school events, the young people have demonstrated the skills to be an advocate for youth engagement in their education settings and wider communities. Under the supervision and guidance of the Youth Engagement Officer, the Ambassadors will support with raising awareness of LOROS services at community and educational events. They will receive training to enable them to answer general questions, as well as signposting to educational and volunteering opportunities, as appropriate. Youth Ambassadors will deliver talks and presentations to their peers and lead on events, in the absence of the Youth Engagement Officer.
The activities which will enhance their involvement within a decision-making role will include being an advocate for young volunteering through the attendance at Volunteer Voice meetings and AGM. The young people will work as a team to identify and develop activities which can be used by LOROS, to engage young people. They will be proactive in sharing opportunities to young people in the community, attend regular Youth Ambassador meetings on a bi-monthly basis and support with the development of the programme. Youth Ambassadors will liaise with the community engagement team to support with the action plan and implementing their strategy.

Young Leicestershire is currently working in partnership with the St Philip’s Centre as part of the Prevent Agenda. Our team of experienced youth workers are working within the local community, to develop resilience to extremism and to encourage the young people they engage with, to have the strength to challenge and resist all forms of extremism, should it arise.
This street-based youth work, operates without the use of a centre and takes place where young people are – geographically and developmentally.
The City Mayor of Leicester and the Home Office agreed that Leicester’s Prevent work will be led by St Philip’s Centre working in partnership with agencies and groups including the Federation of Muslim Organisations (FMO). The post of Prevent Coordinator is located here.
The St Philip’s Centre approach to Prevent is to empower local communities to develop resilience to extremism and have the strength to challenge all forms of extremism when it does arise. The council and the police – as with other statutory organisations – will continue to work together in partnership with the Prevent Coordinator, to deliver Prevent in Leicestershire and Rutland.

We use Augmented Reality software to engage young people in a way that they can relate to. This allows them to scan and learn directly from their mobile phones or our provided tablets. By using this technology users can take in a significantly higher amount of information vs using traditional teaching methods.
Our Workshops cover a range of issues including mental health and digital safety. We will also be expanding our pool of workshops to cover knife crime, drugs and alcohol, healthy living and exploring British values.
